Business rates reductions, discounts and exemptions

Supporting Small Business Relief

As part of the March 2017 budget, the Government announced that it will provide Business Rates relief for businesses who have lost Small Business Rates or Rural Rate Relief following the 2017 property revaluation.

The relief would limit any increase in the ratepayer's 2017/18 bill to £600 more than they paid in 2016/17.

This relief is awarded automatically and amended bills will be issued to qualifying ratepayers. Any relief awarded is subject to state aid limitations.
